WINNIPEG - Mayoral hopeful Judy Wasylycia-Leis wants to earmark about $1 million to fund "community hubs" that offer recreation, parenting classes and other programs to inner-city neighbourhoods.
It’s the first of five planks in her crime-fighting agenda, the rest of which will be announced as the campaign wears on.
Wasylycia-Leis made the announcement over the noon-hour at the Elmwood Community Resource Centre, which needs about $110,000 for a bigger office that can offer more programs and stay open later to help keep kids off the streets.
Wasylycia-Leis said the city provides very minimal funding for inner-city programming.
